Police are looking into whether there was any foul play involving BOBBI KRISTINA BROWN. Her boyfriend Nick Gordon is at the center of the investigation that was launched because Bobbi had suspicious injuries when she was hospitalized and the two have a history of violence between them. TMZ says that Gordon's friend, Max Lomas, found Bobbi in the bathtub and that Gordon later cleaned up the home and removed blood stains before police arrived. Meanwhile, Bobby Brown's family got into a brawl at an Atlanta hotel on Thursday night. Apparently the booze was flowing during dinner when his nephew, Shayne Brown, called his own mother Tina "a crack head." Tina then spit in her son's face and cracked a bottle over his head and one witness says there was "blood everywhere." (Hear the 911 call here)

Lindsay Hoffmann and Marquette Riggsbee went into Waterbury, Connecticut's Very Intimate Pleasures adult store with an infant to do a little shopping. When the women were told children weren't allowed inside they left, only to return a short time later without the newborn. Employees raced outside to find the two-week-old baby in their car wearing only a onesie in 29-degree weather. Manager Tina Marchese said she was shocked at how cavalier the women were towards the child as they continued to shop even after being told the police were coming. The baby was placed in protective custody and the only intimacy the women experienced was perhaps a strip search after they were arrested.
